When it comes to taking road trips, you’re more than likely getting most of your meals from fast-food restaurants or rest stops. It’s easy to grab a bag of junk food, or sugary candy from off the shelf, but we all know that’s not the healthiest choice we should be making. Here are a few tips for finding healthy snacks and meals on the go:
- If you’re eating from a convenience store go for a package of mixed nuts, dried fruit and yogurt and make a healthy parfait
- If your only option is a rest stop on the highway, avoid the high caloric coffee stands, and try and find a meal that covers several food groups (a turkey wrap or a grilled chicken sandwich)
- If your only option is fast food, avoid supersizing! By keeping the meal small you can avoid a lot of calories. Also, keep in mind that just because something is called a salad doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s good for you. Certain dressings can double the amount of calories in a salad! Avoid creamy dressings and save yourself a lot of calories!
